Diamond Debuts Updated DA62 Diesel Twin
Diamond Aircraft Industries is debuting at MEBAA 2018 its new twin-engine DA62 demonstrator, featuring some of the added exterior and interior design options that will be available beginning with the 2019 models. These include an automotive-style fold-down second seat row and a blue exterior design scheme for the all-composite airframe. A larger, more capable version of Diamond’s four-place DA42, the DA62 is touted as a “flying SUV,” with a spacious cabin that seats up to seven. The two 180-hp twin-turbocharged Fadec Austro Engine AE330 diesel engines propel the DA62 to a high-speed cruise of 192 ktas while burning a total of 17.1 mph of Jet A, while economy cruise 60 percent power delivers 159 ktas at just 11.8 gph total. Diamond (Stand 492) also offers a DA62 MPP Multi-Purpose Platform special mission version of the aircraft and delivered in June the first DA62 MPP to DEA Specialised Airborne Operations, UK provider of airborne sensing services including ISR and aerial survey. At loiter power the platform consumes just 7.4 mph, allowing 10-hour non-stop missions.

test Q&A WITH ED BREAULT

aprimo | March 31, 2020

MEDIA 7: What’s your superpower? ED BREAULT: I would say it’s applying the full spectrum of art and science that is required in marketing today. Not just left or right brained, but whole-brained strategy. Being human yet data-driven and really understanding numbers and (the right) metrics to make connections to business drivers.
